(6) HALSEY v. (3) LADY GAGA

Ummmmmm, this one might be tight. It is my belief that Halsey and Lady Gaga would LOOOOOOVE to get into each other’s closets (not a euphemism) and trade. For example, both of these women wore looks that featured a veil:

'A Star is Born' premiere, Arrivals, Toronto International Film Festival, Canada - 09 Sep 2018

and

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Pink Carpet Arrivals, New York, USA - 08 Nov 2018

Gaga’s required the help of B. Coops to be removed, as if she were his bride — which, in some ways, I suppose she was. They were married to their PR for A Star Is Born, if nothing else (and why not). Halsey is wearing lingerie because she performed at the Victoria’s Secret show (although this was not her performance outfit), but, last time I checked, those women generally didn’t top off their undercrackers with wee hats.

Also, both women embraced animal print:

The 2018 HeatRadio Music Awards arrivals

and

Lady Gaga In Leopard Print Outfit Greets Fans

It’s like animal print for 106 degree weather as styled by Pebbles Flintstone, and then animal print for 26 degree weather, also as styled by Pebbles Flintstone.

They both dabbled in the Sheer Arts:

2018 Latin Grammy Awards - Show, Las Vegas, USA - 15 Nov 2018

and

32nd Annual Cinematheque Award honoring Bradley Cooper, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA

Those are two outfits I can truly see them swapping (though Gaga doesn’t wear a lot of jumpsuits, a fact which just occurred to me. We KNOW she doesn’t care if she can go to the bathroom in her clothing — she did once wear an egg — so I wonder why. I appreciate her drawing this line, though).

But there’s so much more! Both women had Adventures in Visible Undies and Lace:

Lady Gaga Steps out in a Black Lacy Outfit

and

EndoFound 9th Annual Blossom Ball - Arrivals, New York, USA - 19 Mar 2018

But I have to admit that I am bummed that Halsey never dressed as a Tudor-era duchess:

A Star is Born UK Premiere

Or a throw pillow:

Lady Gaga Departs Electric Lady Studio

Or whatever the hell this is:

Lady Gaga out in Town in Beige Dress and Riding Helmet Equestrian Hat

And I admit that I am surprised that Gaga hasn’t worn these jeans:

Premiere of Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Or tried this hair color:

Vanity Fair Oscars Party - Arrivals

But they HAVE both relied on the Kindness of Carefully Placed Underpinnings (haven’t we all?):

25th MTV Europe Music Awards, Arrivals, Bilbao, Spain - 04 Nov 2018

and:

Lady Gaga out and about, New York, America - 27 Jun 2018

And they also both appear to own stock in Tiny Ugly Sunglasses Inc — stock I strongly urge them to divest, as surely soon all of America (nay, the world) will realize anew that Tiny Ugly Sunglasses are both (as mentioned) Tiny and also impractical.

(7) ASHLEY GRAHAM v. (2) KAT GRAHAM

The sisters Graham, locked in Graham-to-Graham combat! I have so many Graham-related puns, you guys! This is the last time I get to use them! It’s a shame both of these ladies cannot continue onward in this journey, because verily they are both worthy. Let’s start with a look at Ashley, who hit all of the categories that got people into Fug Madness this year, like Strange Pieces of Fabric Hanging Off Her Human Form:

Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2018

The Glorious Marriage of Buttchecks and Lace:

Vogue Paris Foundation Gala, Haute Couture Fashion Week, Paris, France - 03 Jul 2018

The Wide World of Wacky Sleeves:

Billboard's 13th Annual Women in Music, Arrivals, New York, USA - 06 Dec 2018

Uh, I guess I’ll call this What Happens When Your Sensible Ladysuit Needs a Sassy Sports Bra:

The 2018 Lower Eastside Girls Club Spring Fling

Also, I saw her red pedicure there and for a moment thought she had walked through blood. THAT would have been a dramatic addition to her look.

We literally noted in the original post about this outfit that it would be headlining her Fug Madness run, and INDEED, here ’tis. It’s…quintessentially Fug Madness Bad:

Carma Foundation 11th Annual Geminis Give Back Event, Miami, Florida, USA - 03 Jun 2018

I need to note that I love Kat Graham. I loved her on The Vampire Diaries, and every time we ever interviewed her, she was A DELIGHT. I do not think she takes fashion very seriously, and that is a pleasure for me. As is this, as it is a HOOT:

InStyle Warner Bros Golden Globe After Party

She has a real High Fashion Witch energy that I enjoy (which I suppose makes sense, given that she WAS a High Fashion Witch on Vampire Diaries):

Christian Dior show, Front Row, Spring Summer 2019, Haute Couture Fashion Week, Paris, France - 21 Jan 2019

Like, I’d hang out at that coven.

This next one really makes me chuckle. It was NOT a Halloween costume, but it’s VERY Cher from Clueless, and I just hope she was attending a Hosiery Aficionados Conference. (Cue the one poster who comes in here every three weeks to leave comments about pantyhose that do not make it through our moderation queue. There are other websites for you, sir!)

Celebrities out and about, Los Angeles, USA - 04 Jan 2019

I assume this next one will attract the internet of those of you who have a secret jones for ladies dressed up like they’re in very intriguingly costumed gender-blind Shakespeare in the Park situation:

Jean Paul Gaultier show, Front Row, Spring Summer 2019, Haute Couture Fashion Week, Paris, France - 23 Jan 2019

Alas, poor Kat Graham! I knew her, Fug Nation. A woman of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.

This is certainly fancy, but is its fancy technically excellent?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 24 Feb 2019

Writing these posts really gives you a good feeling for the thing that a celebrity cannot resist. For example, Kat’s got a weakness for an asymmetrical gown:

Green Carpet Fashion Awards Italia, Spring Summer 2019, Milan Fashion Week, Italy - 23 Sep 2018

Like, I don’t know what this is, but symmetrical it is not:

Rochas show, Front Row, Fall Winter 2019, Paris Fashion Week, France - 27 Feb 2019

Is it weird that those shoes are the most offensive things about that to me?
